    The Atlanta Braves and Seattle Mariners agreed on a trade that will send outfielder Jarred Kelenic, left-hander Marco Gonzales, first baseman Evan White and cash considerations to the Braves in exchange for right-handers  Cole Phillips and Jackson Kowar.

    The Braves announced the move on Sunday night.

    Kelenic made his major league debut in 2021 as one of the top prospects in baseball. He struggled through his first two years but put together a strong campaign in 2023, slashing .253/.327/.419 with 11 home runs and 49 RBIs while posting a 2.0 bWAR.

    Kelenic, 24, is arbitration eligible in 2025 and will hit free agency in 2029.

    Phillips, 20, is the seventh-ranked prospect in the Braves' system, according to He was drafted in the second round of the 2022 MLB draft.

    The Braves acquired Kowar last month from the Kansas City Royals. He posted a 6.43 ERA in 28 innings as a reliever last year.

    A nine-year veteran, Gonzales started 10 games for the Mariners last season, going 4-1 with a 5.22 ERA.

    White, 27, was also once a top prospect during the 2017 draft but has played sparingly since his MLB debut in 2020. He was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma to begin last season and suffered a season-ending groin strain in April.
